Isotopes and Families of Elements
Lecture no. 9 from the course: Chemistry, 2nd Edition
Taught by Professor Frank Cardulla | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Discover how isotopes, which are different atoms of the same element, can actually differ in their weight because they contain different numbers of neutrons in their nuclei. Also, learn how different kinds of elements are grouped into both general categories (such as metals and nonmetals) as well as specific chemical "families," which then are arranged into the periodic table.
